to the part where he said that president obama has the wrong ideas about government because he's black. here's the way "the tulsa world" wrote that one up. responding to a man in langley who asked if obama wants to destroy america, coburn said that the president is very bright and loves america but his political philosophy is goofy and wrong. obama's intent is not to destroy, his intent to create dependency because it worked so well for him, he said. quote, as an african-american male, coburn said, obama received tremendous advantage from a lot of these programs. through greg sergeant at "the washington post," "the tulsa world" reporter who wrote this account later released the full context of senator coburn's remarks. and the full context does not help. it does not soften the remarks. quote, his indiana tent isn't to destroy, it's to create dependency because it worked so well for him. as an african-american male coming through the progress of everything he experienced, he got tremendous benefit through a lot of these programs so he believes in them. if he wasn't black, he wouldn't believe

? obama's election proved what we can do, but are we doing it? 48 years after dr. king's historic address, the first african-american president struggles to fulfill the dream. white voters prefer the republican but in 2008, barack obama didn't do too badly with whites. what about next time? will the racial divide grow wide and nasty? and finally, dick cheney and the tea party. does his hawkishness sell the republican voters? do they have a champion in the fight this time? so far you have to say no. welcome to the show. with us today, new york magazine's john holman, cynthia tucker, the "new york times's" helene cooper and "time" magazine's richard sten gal. the very fact of president barack obama is a resounding affirmation. two generations later of dr. martin luther king's dream. it was 42 years ago today that dr. king talked about america as a shining city on the hill. that seemed to be coming true two years ago today when barack obama wove that into his speech. >> that promise 45 years ago today brought americans from every corner of the land to stand together on the mall in washington
, earlier this year a group of members sent a letter to president obama urging him to grant clemensy at this point and commute the sentence for jonathan pove earth. he spied on the united states on behalf of israel. he should not have done that and he was punished. but the punishment for that espionage has gone on longer than being comparable. i believe there is a personal argument for the clemensy. and there is also the fact that american-israeli relations are always important and are particularly important now. we are asking the israelis to take some steps towards a negotiated peace. it may or may not be impossible for them to take. knowing that america recognizes the strength of that friendship is a important factor of our persuading them of that. the fact that he has served so long, we're not asking him to be barded -- pardonned, we're not condoning his crime. we're saying in addition to the personal argument, it would be a sign of u.s.-israeli relations that i think would help strengthen the climate for peace. and i will be submitting a copy of the letter we sent to the presiden

campaign journey through the midwest president obama began to vaguely shine some of the light on the economic plan he will unveil when he returns from miss martha's vineyard vacation. today he said measures include aimed at creating jobs. he will propose to the congressional leaders in super committee more tan 1.5 trillion in budget cuts. how? all you have to do is read his lips. it sounds like tax hikes are back. >> the president: if you have a deal that does not have revenue in it, and you still want to close the deficit by say four trillion, if you have no revenue the only way to do that you have to drastically cut. there's no two ways about it. you have to drasticly cut medicare. you have to drastically cut medicaid. you have to cut back on education support in significant ways that affect school kids right here and across the country. >> sean: here's the translation, if you allow him to raise taxes seniors will have to say good-bye to medicare and poor children and kids all over the country will be left to fend for themselves in the streets. his address will include a hea
, of course, for president obama. the fact that the market itself was largely about europe's debt crisis is going to be of little solace to the people running mr. obama's re-election campaign. if they're hoping the president's political skills plus a loser republican opponent will get him through next november, don't count on it. i worked for president carter against reagan and voters not accept the argument had you no choice but to stick with the incumbent. it's a losing strategy. plus, how exactly did the tea party, a minority in one-half of one-third of the government, the house of representatives, manage to shape the direction of the country to its will. facts, history, evidence, do not matter to them. all that matters is a commitment to ideology, and willing to risk among other things bringing down the economy if they don't get their way. senator pat moynihan of new york said you're entitled to your on opinion, not your own facts. the tea party disagrees. up in the air, 200 construction 70,000 construction workers out of work, why? because of another quibble in congress. an effort b
"hardball." >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. from day one of obama's presidency they have been coming from him. rush limbaugh wanted him to fail. mitch mcconnell says the number one goal was it make obama a one-term president. the tea party claimed obama was a big government socialist that there was something unamerican about his healthcare plan. the attacks became ethnic. even racist with birthers questioning whether he was born in the country. the u.s. congress got into the game spending millions to defeat him. same companies earning record profits by minimizing and squeezing their pay rolls. now, conserves are going after the poor saying they need to be taxed more while asking the rich to contribute nothing. all the while charging obama with engaging in class warfare. well, they accuse obama f creating divisions when they went after him and that's our top story tonight. the same republicans talk about the need to cut spending during tough economic times. surely some of them know history but doing so now threatens to choke the fragile recovery and throwing us back into r

. as always, we've got a lot to talk about tonight. but first, president obama says he has a plan to fix the economy. it's a plan he says will get americans back to work. but that plan will not be unveiled until september. so, is there a plan or are they making it up as they go along? plus, 11 more crimes linked to fast and furious guns. we have the latest on the growing scandal. and, in a man bites dog story, tobacco company launchs a lawsuit against the federal government. saying the new warning labels violate their free speech rights. we'll see our five take on that and lots more.

there is a dramatic, a dramatic turn of events, barack obama's presidential career is in peril, all the polls show that. it's becoming hard to see how mr. obama could ever win re-election with the economic circumstances so dire. i mean, it's like a football coach. you get a certain amount of time to turn a bad team around. and then you are fired if you don't. blaming president bush for the current chaos not going to work any longer. but the democratic party simply will not stop doing that and will not admit that the big spending agenda has driven the country to the brink of brussments instead, they continue the blame game. >> i believe this is, without question, the tea party downgrade. this is the tea party downgrade because a minority of people in the house of representatives countered even the will of many republicans in the united states senate who were prepared to do a bigger deal. the fact of the matter is that this is essentially a tea party downgrade. the tea party brought us to the brink of a default. and, by the way, you said before, the president said this -- if we had defaulted on our
very successfully, i think is bringing that voice to why we need to get rid of obama care, the dodd frank bill and the chief officer of author of both both of those appeal deals, the companies in iowa tell me those bills are leading them to not be able to create jobs. >> other than repealing obama care, are there other ways that you would try to help create jobs in the shore term. >> oh, sure. what we need to do, quite frankly, is repeal the tax code, in its current form, it is 3.8 million words, we need a tax code that is job friendly, this is not a job friendly tax code. when you have one of the highest corporate tax rates in the world, 34 percent, that is not going to incentivize people to start new businesses. we need to make sure we lower our tax rate and there are a number of things in the tax code that i would change and that would help job creation. >> you have spent five years in the united states congress, what can you point to as a record of accomplishment there? >> well, the bulk of my time speaker pelosi has been the speaker of the house and not embraced my pro growth a

for the role. >> i am -- for this microphone -- chris: democrats hope barack obama won't be like jimmy carter, whose economic times were so tough they got reagan elected and reagan's far right views weren't even in focus. could the same be true for rirk perry? if he were the republican nominee, would his controversial views get ignored? >> i'm not real sure you're a bunch of right wing extremists, but if you are, i'm with you. >> john is this what the republican parties wants? a guy wo -- who kids around and embraces the far right? >> certainly i think that the republican party right now is a very it logical party. the story of reagan is a guy with extraordinarily good skills, with deep conviction, with a degree of certainty about himself that was lacking on the part of any other candidate. all those things are present in rick perry and not as pretty in mitt romney and they give perry a real advantage going into the race. chris: can you see this kind of hard right candidacy cock sure about i know the truth and i know the enemy, that's the president. can that run over the middle of the road ov
